Description

Course Description*

This course provides an introduction to the civil procedure issues that arise in American courts when international matters are involved. It examines how international parties, events, and laws alter (or not) the manner in which American federal courts handle civil procedure issues. This course covers topics such as personal jurisdiction, subject matter jurisdiction, venue, forum nonconveniens, and choice of law. This course also includes Erie Railroad v. Tompkins and other subjects that may not normally be included in an international civil litigation course. Other topics unique to international litigation, such as the Act of State doctrine, the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act, and the Alien Tort Claims Act, will also be addressed.
